Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This pioneering book seeks to transcend the limitations of separate English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh histories by taking the archipelago made up of the islands of Britain and Ireland as a single unit of study. This is a story of the creation of a British state system if not a British state, with the incorporation of Wales into the English state, the creation of a kingdom of Ireland dependent on the English Crown and of a confederation of the Scottish and English crowns; and it is the story of how the various peoples of the archipelago interacted and became different peoples as a result of that interaction.

Book News Annotation:

Responding to the series' central thesis of locating and devolving an historical problem, the ten contributing scholars argue for a cohesive, unified approach to the study of the British state during the period. The essays represent English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh histories by taking the archipelago centered on the island of Britain and Ireland as a single unit of study, considering the interaction of its peoples as a result of migration, military conquest, and protestant and Tridentine Catholic evangelism.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 262-318) and index.
